Gauss's law for electric fields, Gauss's law for magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and the Ampere–Maxwell law are four of the most influential equations in science. In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain-language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the equation, for both the integral and differential forms. The final chapter shows how Maxwell's equations may be combined to produce the wave equation, the basis for the electromagnetic theory of light. This book is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. A website hosted by the author at www.cambridge.org/9780521701471 contains interactive solutions to every problem in the text as well as audio podcasts to walk students through each chapter.

This highly illustrated and accessible text will be an ideal introduction to the application of electromagnetics (EM) following an initial course in basic EM theory. The book covers the well established structure of elementary EM courses, beginning with Maxwell’s equations in integral form and developing the wave equation to show the essential properties of waves. In addition to providing a grounding in this traditional curriculum, the principal concern throughout is to make difficult concepts of electromagnetism more accessible. The adoption of time domain methods for this purpose is the book’s most important breakthrough, allowing the fundamentals of applied electromagnetics to be introduced with a clarity and simplicity not available through the conventional route. Another new aspect of this book is the integration of computational modelling methods with the standard theory of electromagnetic waves. The author presents a set of example programs written in the MATLAB language to support the ideas outlined in the text. The book is organized in a logical progression of ideas, starting with the general idea of wave motion and showing how the equations of electricity and magnetism lead to the existence of electromagnetic waves through the Maxwell’s equations. These ideas are then applied to simple accelerating charge models used in the engineering design of wire antennas. The concepts of resonance and antenna impedance are then treated from a time domain point of view. To reinforce the concepts of wave propagation, a chapter on computer modelling shows the rigorous procedures required to generate accurate numerical models of wave dynamics. The author extends these ideas to consider the properties of aperture antennas, showing how their important properties can be incorporated with the basic themes introduced earlier in the book. Finally, the important topic of wave scattering is introduced, once again from the point of view of time domain concepts.

Designed for upper division electromagnetism courses or as a reference for electrical engineers and scientists, this book introduces Maxwell’s equations and electromagnetic waves as soon as possible (i.e., in the first third of the book), and then goes on to discuss electrostatics, magnetostatics, induction, etc., in the light of those equations. The book also provides a thorough discussion of vector field theory which emphasizes the rotational invariance of the dot and cross products, together with div, grad, and curl, and thus gives a clear physical motivation for the use of those constructs to describe electric and magnetic fields. Unlike many competing books, Maxwell’s Equations & the Principles of Electromagnetism covers topics such as advanced potentials, retarded fields, forces on dielectric liquids, antenna theory, and Faraday rotations.

Requiring no advanced knowledge of wave propagation, An Introduction to Metamaterials and Waves in Composites focuses on theoretical aspects of metamaterials, periodic composites, and layered composites. The book gives novices a platform from which they can start exploring the subject in more detail. After introducing concepts related to elasticity, acoustics, and electrodynamics in media, the text presents plane wave solutions to the equations that describe elastic, acoustic, and electromagnetic waves. It examines the plane wave expansion of sources as well as scattering from curved interfaces, specifically spheres and cylinders. The author then covers electrodynamic, acoustic, and elastodynamic metamaterials. He also describes examples of transformations, aspects of acoustic cloaking, and applications of pentamode materials to acoustic cloaking. With a focus on periodic composites, the text uses the Bloch-Floquet theorem to find the effective behavior of composites in the quasistatic limit, presents the quasistatic equations of elastodynamic and electromagnetic waves, and investigates Brillouin zones and band gaps in periodic structures. The final chapter discusses wave propagation in smoothly varying layered media, anisotropic density of a periodic layered medium, and quasistatic homogenization of laminates. This book provides a launch pad for research into elastic and acoustic metamaterials. Many of the ideas presented have yet to be realized experimentally—the book encourages readers to explore these ideas and bring them to technological maturity.

Modern technology is rapidly developing and for this reason future engineers need to acquire advanced knowledge in science and technology, including electromagnetic phenomena. This book is a contemporary text of a one-semester course for junior electrical engineering students. It covers a broad spectrum of electromagnetic phenomena such as, surface waves, plasmas, photonic crystals, negative refraction as well as related materials including superconductors. In addition, the text brings together electromagnetism and optics as the majority of texts discuss electromagnetism disconnected from optics. In contrast, in this book both are discussed. Seven labs have been developed to accompany the material of the book.

Essentials of Electromagnetics for Engineering, first published in 2000, provides a clearly written introduction to the key physical and engineering principles of electromagnetics. Throughout the book, the author describes the intermediate steps in mathematical derivations that many other textbooks leave out. The author begins by examining Coulomb's law and simple electrostatics, covering in depth the concepts of fields and potentials. He then progresses to magnetostatics and Maxwell's equations. This approach leads naturally to a discussion of electrodynamics and the treatment of wave propagation, waveguides, transmission lines, and antennas. At each stage, the author stresses the physical principles underlying the mathematical results. Many homework exercises are provided, including several in Matlab and Mathematica formats. The book contains a separate chapter on numerical methods in electromagnetics, and a broad range of worked examples to illustrate important concepts. It is suitable as a textbook for undergraduate students of engineering and applied physics taking introductory courses in electromagnetics.

Magnetic Fields, Special Relativity and Potential Theory is an introduction to electromagnetism, special relativity, and potential theory, with emphasis on the magnetic field of steady currents (magnetostatics). Topics covered range from the origin of the magnetic field and the magnetostatic scalar potential to magnetization, electromagnetic induction and magnetic energy, and the displacement current and Maxwell's equations. This volume is comprised of five chapters and begins with an overview of magnetostatics, followed by a chapter on the methods of solving potential problems drawn from electrostatics, magnetism, current flow, and gravitation. Relaxing the constraint of stationary steady currents, the next chapter considers electromagnetic induction when the current strengths in closed circuits vary or when the circuits move. This leads to the necessity of assessing the breakdown of Newtonian ideas and the introduction of special relativity. When the constraint of closed circuits is further relaxed and the motion of charges in open circuits is taken into account, the discussion turns to displacement current because of the relativistic theory already set up, leading to Maxwell's equations. This book will be a valuable resource for undergraduate students of physics.
